In , a supposed workable ore area was discovered and Leadfield Mine was quickly established. Unfortunately the demise of the mine was as quick as it was established, lasting less than a year.

The one-way section of Titus Canyon Road starts off Daylight Pass Road and travels from east to west. The mile maintained dirt drive is suitable for high-clearance two- and four-wheel-drive vehicles only.

        Justly famous for its weather extremes, Death Valley National Park hardly seems like a hospitable place for wildlife. A ˚ F reading in July earned the valley the dubious honor of the hottest place on Earth, and, with average annual precipitation less than two inches, it’s also considered the driest spot in North America. The road and scenery through Titus Canyon in Death Valley produces all the ups and downs of a young love, then steadies out into the young matronly area. Further on, it matures and gains the stature of sedate old age. Titus Canyon Road. That’s a pretty good life span for a mere 25 miles. The only problem is that occasionally heavy rains rip.
